Every year, the Artists for The Bay Show and Sale displays the creative and artisan works of artists, sculptors and jewelers at our Providence Bay Center. Visitors to the show will discover a variety of artwork, ranging from elegant seascapes to handcrafted jewelry.

The Artists for The Bay Show and Sale is one of Save The Bay’s annual fundraisers, and participating artists generously donate 50 percent of their sales to support Save The Bay’s advocacy, education and restoration work.

In light of Save The Bay’s 50th Anniversary, the 2019 show will feature an exclusive Founder’s Collection. Some of the show’s earliest participating artists have generously donated their artwork to this celebratory exhibit, and have volunteered to donate 100 percent of their proceeds to Save The Bay.

The Artists for The Bay Show and Sale begins with an Opening Reception on Thursday, December 5 and ends in January, with a free Closing Reception. During the show, guests are invited to browse and purchase artwork during regular business hours (Mon.-Fri., 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).

Through the years, many of my Rhode Island landscapes have sold to raise money to support Save The Bay's efforts to protect Narragansett Bay. It is an honor to have a large piece hang in Save The Bay’s foyer for all the many guests who visit their Providence headquarters.
